High School Football Star Arrested For Attack On 14-Year-Old

WACO (February 24, 2009)—An affidavit released Tuesday says the injury to a child charge filed against star La Vega High School running back Christopher Dantae Parr, 17, stems from an attack on a 14-year-old boy.

Parr was arrested Monday.

His bond was set at $25,000.

The victim was assaulted last week at Parr’s home at 1127 Clover, the affidavit said.

The boy suffered a contusion and a small laceration above his right eye and rib contusions in the assault, the affidavit said.

He was kicked while he was on the ground, the affidavit said.

It’s the third time Parr has been arrested in six months.

Police arrested Parr in mid-January at La Vega High School without incident in connection with the break-in at an apartment at 800 Rambler in Waco in which shoes, jewelry, electronics and a pistol were taken.

Parr was charged last year in connection with the armed hold-up of Lonnie Sawyer, 19, who told police he was robbed around 10:40 p.m. on Aug. 23 in the 5200 block of Concord Road in Bellmead.

In November the McLennan County District Attorney's Office said the criminal complaint against Parr was dropped after the teenager passed a polygraph test.

Parr did not play during the regular season, but did take the field in four playoff games including La Vega's state title game loss to Prosper.
